Medium Nessus Plugin ID 94013


The remote host is affected by multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities in the kernel API that allow a local attacker, via a specially crafted application, to disclose sensitive registry information.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows Vista, 2008, 7, 2008 R2, 2012, 8.1, RT 8.1, 2012 R2, and 10.
